Great posts and quotes Robert - thank you!


Good afternoon Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. For me, the most important thing for me to do is create space for my Creator God. Take time to think on Him and to talk to Him, He will be there to listen. Have a blessed day today and always.

I've seen a lot of place holders in my day my friend. Have a great Saturday Jack! Thank you!
